's the republican, of course, mitt romney, watching as president obama kind of rambles through his talking points. now, you notice romney's kind of smiling just slightly there, but really, that is the look of a man who's thinking to himself, i have read your playbook, my friend. i knew you were going to say that, and i am all over you. doesn't matter what romney said. it doesn't matter if it was a so-called etch-a-sketch moment. what matters is it was the president who was stumbling andstruggling and looking woefully underprepared. there's a whole cottage industry out there devoted to speculating what went wrong but the "new york times" quotes white house advisors as saying the president's practice efforts were inconsistent and he thinks debates are a waste, more theater than substance. okay, but to take the theater analogy one step further, the awed dons doesn't care why the star can't perform and sometimes it is the understudy who gets the standing o. in other words, this race just got a whole lot more interesting over the last several days and the thing is, if we can believe the "new york time

where mitt romney stands on the issues. he talked about not taxing the wealthy. now he says he will tax the wealthy. he talks about energy independence now but didn't support the president on his programs to create alternative forms of energy for our country, which this president did. he talks about tax changes to help business development. who did that? president obama, with 100% tax credit in manufacturing, for example, which has just sizzled across the industrial midwest with the business start-ups that we see. even art furnaces being installed on the ohio republic steel. we haven't seen this in two decades. so, he can talk as a candidate, but the president has done it in a very difficult situation that he inherited from the bush administration, where the whole country's economy collapsed because of those titans up on wall street that tied up the finances of this country, and literally, we've had the largest transfer of wealth in american history from main street to wall street. you think that mitt romney, who was a part of that culture, is going to change anything for the people of
